This cold-weather winner is nothing more than red wine infused with spices, but the right flavor combinations can produce spectacular results. Here, a big-bodied red Zinfandel takes on a heady whiff of cardamom and the fresh, wintry aroma of juniper berries and three kinds of citrus fruit in this traditional Glogg recipe.

Delicious! I used dark brown sugar to sweeten and substituted dried currants for raisins in the bottom of my cup. I think bottling up a few batches would make great Christmas gifts. As a girl with Norwegian roots, I give this recipe fem stjerner (five stars).
